We only have 15 guests so we have bought a photo album with writing space next to the photos and will leave a camera there and ask them to take a snap and sign the book and we will add the photo later and use it as a photo album. Kill 2 birds with 1 stone and all that.
We are making a photo book either off of Shutterfly or Costco and leaving white spaces for the guests to sign. The pictures will just be photos of us in chronological order and ending with our engagement photos. We wanted to include photos in some way since we’ve been together for 10 years so we’ve done a lot of “transforming” haha so this was our way of doing so!
We got this cute puzzle from Walmart that is all white and heart shaped. We will have guests sign this and then put our wedding photo in the middle and hang it on the wall in our house when we get one. We are also going to have a traditional guestbook for people to leave comments in.
We’re doing a traditional book. We got a beautiful vera wang guestbook as a gift at our engagement party. It has a space to insert a picture (we will put one for the wedding hut after exchange for a pictire with the entire wedding). I wasn’t surr ehat to do but since we got it we’ll be using that 😊
I wanted something we would actually look at instead of book that will sit on a shelf and never be looked at again. Guests can leave us a note in one (or more) bottles and then we will read them all on that anniversary.
We just went with a regular little book. The Art peices are nice, but they usually end up being huge and if you ever want to take it down it much harder to store. A book you can just put on a book shelf, and pull out when you want to share memories 🤗 I got these (It came with a matching ring dish) on Etsy.
We wanted to get something that we could hang up in our living room so we can see it everyday so we decided to get a fingerprint tree! We will have ink pads of various colours that the guests can use to imprint their fingerprints onto the drawing. It will look like a nice wreath once it is complete! I got this online from a Chinese website and I think it only costed me $20 CAD with the ink pads!
From Michaels! I bought a bunch of different pens from there as well to test which ones wouldn't bleed and I found Micros 08 was the best! The outside is a tan/light brown colour and the pens themselves come in a variety of colours. There was another type too, with more of a whitish casing and the lid and bottom were the colour of the pen. I don't see a name in the picture I have but the name could always be on the other side.
We went for a more traditional book (except that we bought a cute notebook instead of an actual 'guestbook'), and I'm really happy that we did, because some people wrote really long messages that are very sweet and precious.
Now I'm just wondering what use I could make of all the empty pages left. I was thinking maybe we could add some love letters to each other on our anniversaries (that would give us an excuse to reread the messages too), or something like that.
